Este ebook incluye Puerto escondido, Un lugar a donde ir y Donde fuimos invencibles. Puerto escondido Oliver, un joven londinense con una peculiar situación familiar y una triste pérdida, hereda una casona colonial, Villa Marina, a pie de playa en el pueblecito costero de Suances, en Cantabria. En las obras de remodelación se descubre en el sótano el cadáver emparedado de un bebé, al que acompaña un objeto que resulta completamente anacrónico. Tras este descubrimiento comienzan a sucederse, de forma vertiginosa, diversos asesinatos en la zona (Suances, Santillana del Mar, Santander, Comillas), que, unidos a los insólitos resultados forenses de los cadáveres, ponen en jaque a la Sección de Investigación de la Guardia Civil y al propio Oliver, que inicia un denso viaje personal y una carrera a contrarreloj para descubrir al asesino. Un lugar a donde ir Han transcurrido varios meses desde que Suances, un pequeño pueblo de la costa cántabra, fuese testigo de varios asesinatos que sacudieron a sus habitantes. Sin embargo, cuando ya todo parecía haber vuelto a la normalidad, aparece el cadáver de una joven en La Mota de Trespalacios, un recóndito lugar donde se encuentran las ruinas de una inusual construcción medieval. Lo más sorprendente del asunto no es que la joven vaya ataviada como una exquisita princesa del medievo, sino el objeto que porta entre sus manos y el extraordinario resultado forense de la autopsia. Cuando hasta los más escépticos comienzan a plantearse un imposible viaje en el tiempo, comienzan a ocurrir más asesinatos en la zona que parecen estar indisolublemente unidos a la muerte de la misteriosa dama medieval. Mientras Valentina Redondo y su equipo investigan los hechos a contrarreloj, Oliver Gordon, ayudado por su viejo amigo de la infancia, el músico Michael Blake, buscará sin descanso el paradero de su hermano Guillermo, desaparecido desde hace ya dos años, y descubrirá que la verdad se dibuja con contornos punzantes e inesperados. Donde fuimos invencibles El verano está terminando y la teniente Valentina Redondo está contando los días para empezar sus vacaciones. Pero algo insólito sucede en el centro mismo del pueblo costero de Suances: el jardinero del antiguo Palacio del Amo ha aparecido muerto en el césped de esa enigmática propiedad. El palacio es una de las casonas con más historia de los alrededores, y después de permanecer mucho tiempo deshabitada, el escritor americano Carlos Green, heredero de la propiedad, ha decidido instalarse temporalmente en el lugar donde vivió sus mejores veranos de juventud. Pero la paz que buscaba se verá truncada por el terrible suceso, y aunque todo apunta a una muerte por causas naturales, parece que alguien ha tocado el cadáver, y Carlos confiesa que en los últimos días ha percibido presencias inexplicables a la razón. A pesar de que Valentina es absolutamente escéptica en torno a lo paranormal, tanto ella como su equipo, e incluso su pareja, Oliver, se verán envueltos en una sucesión de hechos insólitos que les llevarán a investigar lo sucedido de la forma más extravagante y anómala, descubriendo que algunos lugares guardan un sorprendente aliento atemporal y secreto y que todos los personajes tienen algo que contar y ocultar.

In this important, entertaining book, one of the world's most celebrated psychologists, Martin Seligman, asserts that happiness can be learned and cultivated, and that everyone has the power to inject real joy into their lives. In Authentic Happiness, he describes the 24 strengths and virtues unique to the human psyche. Each of us, it seems, has at least five of these attributes, and can build on them to identify and develop to our maximum potential. By incorporating these strengths - which include kindness, originality, humour, optimism, curiosity, enthusiasm and generosity -- into our everyday lives, he tells us, we can reach new levels of optimism, happiness and productivity. Authentic Happiness provides a variety of tests and unique assessment tools to enable readers to discover and deploy those strengths at work, in love and in raising children. By accessing the very best in ourselves, we can improve the world around us and achieve new and lasting levels of authentic contentment and joy.

New York Times and worldwide bestselling author Isabel Allende returns with a sweeping novel that journeys from present-day Brooklyn to Guatemala in the recent past to 1970s Chile and Brazil. An instant New York Times bestseller, In the Midst of Winter is about three very different people who are brought together in a mesmerizing story that offers “a timely message about immigration and the meaning of home” (People). During the biggest Brooklyn snowstorm in living memory, Richard Bowmaster, a lonely university professor in his sixties, hits the car of Evelyn Ortega, a young undocumented immigrant from Guatemala, and what at first seems an inconvenience takes a more serious turn when Evelyn comes to his house, seeking help. At a loss, the professor asks his tenant, Lucia Maraz, a fellow academic from Chile, for her advice. As these three lives intertwine, each will discover truths about how they have been shaped by the tragedies they witnessed, and Richard and Lucia will find unexpected, long overdue love. Allende returns here to themes that have propelled some of her finest work: political injustice, the art of survival, and the essential nature of—and our need for—love.
